This restaurant is a step back in time. Plenty of comfort food is available. Some items were a hit like the hot bacon slaw, sauerbraten, and potato cake. Some items like the rolls and noodles were average. Their main item, fried chicken, was also average.

For $13 a pop you'd think the buffet would be exceptional. Instead, you get industrial, just-add-water mashed potatoes, congealed gravy, off-flavored mac and cheese, sodium-laced green beans and stewed tomatoes (stewed tomatoes, really?). While the chicken is good, the pieces are small and, like the...More

Originally founded with chicken as their main dish we have been going here for years and in that time they have expanded out into excellent ribs, chicken, and german dishes. If you've never been to the Roost it's worth planning a trip. Great staff and...More
